Turkey Hold'em Ride

Join us Saturday, November 17th for a mixed terrain poker ride benefiting two local charities. Riders or teams of 2 will make their way to 5 unique locations to be named the morning of the event. At each stop they will receive 1 playing card, and the 5 cards each person/team collects will make up their poker hand. 

Riders will select their own route to reach of the unique locations, jumping between dirt and road sections. It will be a choose-your-own adventure, a scramble and a test in route planning. The ideal bike for this event will be a gravel bike, but a hard tail mountain bike would be a good choice, as well.

There will be prizes for the best poker hands and other fun awards. This will not be a timed event, as it will be about having fun and raising money for two great causes. 100% of all proceeds will be split between MCBC and the SF Marin Food Bank.
